The Honkeys - Tequila Mockingbird

The Honkeys are St. Louis’ current premier surf/instrumental rock ’n’ roll sensations. With lightning-fast Fender and Mosrite guitar-picking artistry; tons of fuzz and reverb effects; heart-pumping bass; foot-stomping, big-beat percussion; mysterious, spine-tingling organ riffs; and intriguing melodies bristling with excitement and adolescent menace, these fine young men lay down some of the wildest, sexiest, and most exotic surf and instrumental rock ’n’ roll stylings ever attempted around this part of the landlocked Midwest. Inspired by their love of ’60s go-go movies, reverb, chili, yo-yos, and the occasional professional wrestling match, they molded their noise into a groovy modern interpretation of instrumental surf music that is both unmistakable and unforgettable. They are faithful to their instruments’ traditional vocabularies as they strive to create the instrumental sound of now; contemporary in attitude, fresh and exciting in execution.

Solid heavy surf, and a Zappa cover to boot. Merry Christmas Tru.
